Day 292: A world without

the first generation of North Korea's ballistic missile, the second generation was tested this week. from mailonline.

The idea is spreading (at least in some parts of the globe), a world without nuclear weapons?!

From the Japan Times Online, "U.S. President Barack Obama has committed his administration to the long-cherished dream of a world without nuclear weapons. In a landmark speech in Prague last weekend, Mr. Obama pledged that the United States would demonstrate "moral responsibility" and lead international efforts toward that goal. It will be a long and difficult task, not least because many believe such ambitions are naive and dangerous. Mr. Obama must not bow to that sentiment. Overcoming such deeply ingrained beliefs will require efforts by all nations. The key to realizing a world without nuclear weapons is ensuring stability by other means."

Yet, what might come of the existing nuclear waste still seems completely up in the air...

Obama has reduced support for the Yucca Mountain Project, which would be the nation's first high-level nuclear waste repository. Read about the controversy of defunding the project in the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists.
